I agree that it's time to move past the vitriol of the elections. I think that white people have now been given a pass on racism. We have elected and re-elected a black president and it's time to put the past to bed. Any disagreements I have with this president are based solely on what path I feel this country should take. It has nothing to do with color. My youngest child is a strawberry blonde with light green eyes. As a baby he had little hair and a porcelain complexion. One comment his 5 year old sister made at the time was that he and Devon (an African American child in her K class) could be twins. She had never made that comment about her two brothers, so I asked why.
